Moore is pleased to welcome 5 Into 1 back for its twenty-third year as we celebrate the city's emerging artists working in the round. Organized by Philadelphia Sculptors, the annual exhibition showcases recent projects created by 2023 BFA/MFA graduates who completed their degrees at five area colleges and universities. The presentation is an opportunity for young artists to show their sculptural creations in a unique format that emphasizes strength in Philadelphia's burgeoning community of emerging makers. Highlighting the achievements and artistic merit of selected artists from Moore College of Art & Design, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Tyler School of Art and Architecture, The University of the Arts, and University of Pennsylvania, the curators reviewed and included works from departments not solely dedicated to sculptural output. Through a flexible approach, they focused on students whose work and/or studio practices reflect and promote sculptural thinking and movement.
Participating artists include Lily Scharff (Moore College of Art & Design); Julio Galvez, Lasha Stewart, and Kelly Lawler (Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts); Brynn Hurlstone and Maria Marte (Tyler School of Art); Tori Schwartz, Maple Young, and Grace Plett (The University of the Arts); and Chenxi Shao (University of Pennsylvania).
Curated by Patrick Cabry, Chenlin Cai, Mandi Hall, Jacintha Kruc, Sherry Rossini, and Jaymi Vilardo.
